MESA - maya plugin for working with source files, import and export

The objective of MESA, is to make the full asset creation process within the Maya interface so it supports mod and item creation with any games that have workshop publishing tools. MESA is compatible with all recent versions of Maya ( 2011/2012/2013/2014 with x86 and x64 bits )

Does anyone know how to add particle effects? After some searches I realized that it needs some coding into the .qc file but i didn't really get how it all works...

Actually, since Blender is potentially getting an official Steam release I'm going to put together a series of tutorials on making dota 2 items with blender.

A tutorial on rigging simple things like capes and pony tails in maya would be very useful for people that have no rigging or animation background. Could somebody please make one or point me towards a good tutorial? (even if it's not dota specific)
